DO A STRAND TEST
To avoid any embarrassing 'surprises' or weeks of hat wearing make sure you make time for a strand test before going crazy with our life changing color. It won't take long and will ensure you have chosen the fiercest colour. Follow our top tips for stress free dyeing;
Rubber gloves are a must! Crazy Color® dyes may only be semi-permanent but don't let that fool you! If you get dye on your skin it will stain, and nobody wants their hands to be the same colour as their hot new hair so BEWARE!
Safety first, okay, so you have 2 options for testing.
TO TEST THE DESIRED COLOUR OF HAIR ONLY
Cut off a small piece of hair (If you do choose to cut a strand to test, please note: allergies and skin reactions to dye are not being tested)
TO TEST THE DESIRED COLOUR OF HAIR ONLY (RECOMMENDED)
Choose a hidden section of hair to work with
Next, apply 1 tablespoon of your dream Crazy Color® dye to your sample. Always apply the dye to wet hair for optimum results. (ps. Always evenly coat the strand to maximise full colour coverage, unless it's the tie-dye look you are after of course!)
Let the dye soak in for approx 15 minutes (ps. if your hair is thick or coarse you may benefit from leaving it on for around 30 minutes) before thoroughly rinsing the sample to reveal your electrifying new colour.
Ps. Ps. Remember it can take up to 24 hours for any allergic reactions to surface. If you experience no reactions you are free to go crazy and colour! Oh and remember if you are feeling really daring why don't you try mixing our colours to create a devilish shade unique to you!
DO A SENSITIVITY TEST
Firstly, clean a small area of skin for testing, some people often do it in the inside of the arm or behind the ears as these areas are relatively discreet.
Squeeze a small drop of dye onto the cleaned area and leave it on the skin for as long as possible – we recommend 48 hours!
Allergies are very rare, but if during the test period you notice any abnormal reactions such as itching, redness or swelling in or around the test area, DO NOT APPLY THE PRODUCT
If no reaction occurs you are good to go and can crazy colour until you heart is content! Enjoy!
MAKING CRAZY COLOR® LAST LONGER
Rinse hair with cold water, post shampooing. It closes the hair cuticles and seals in maximum colour.
Shampoo as little as possible. Semi-permanents will lose colour after each wash so avoid over-washing hair. Bed head and grungy always gets a thumbs up from us.
No sunbathing. Too much direct sunlight will strip all that edgy Crazy Color® right out.
Avoid swimming. Chlorine is another nasty product that will strip the life and color from your lovely hair so AVOID.
Use systems designed to protect hair colour especially those with leave-in conditioning products.
MAKE COLOR FADE FASTER
If you've changed your fickle mind and want another colour faster than it fades or if you've had a disaster (it can happen) we have a few tips that we've learnt over the years.
Wash your hair as much as possible. Each wash will begin the colour fading process and the more you do it, the more it will fade.
Ditch your regular shampoo. Use anti- dandruff or clarifying shampoo or shampoos for greasy hair -not shampoos for dry, damaged or coloured hair.
Hot water opens the hair follicles and is guaranteed to speed up the fading process.
The salon. Or finally, the sensible option - go to a hairdresser who can professionally remove the unwanted colour.
REMOVING HAIR DYE FROM SKIN
If you have been left with some unwanted embarrassing stain's we have a few tips to remove them quick! Luckily enough you will have most of them in your cupboard.
Alcohol Dab a bit of the pure stuff on a piece of cotton wool and rub around the hairline or hands. (over 18s only)
Toothpaste is a handy one. Make it into a paste using soap and water - use a cotton bud around the hairline.
Bicarbonate of soda Apply a solution to the stained skin and rub gently.
